November in Dublin: Indian Summer in The Spa at the Four Seasons

Four Seasons Hotel DublinThe Indian Summer may be long gone (the holidays are right around the corner!), but the Four Seasons Hotel Dublin is bringing you a little summer sunshine with some new spa treatments. Throughout the month of November, when you're not getting cozy in a Dublin pub, retreat to the spa sanctuary at the Four Seasons, the only hotel in town with a full-service spa. The "Ultimate Indian Summer" treatment package draws on traditional Indian ingredients and techniques to ward away the winter blues. You'll start off with the Aromatic Lulur Sayan Body Scrub, which incorporates sandalwood, ginger, cumin seed and yogurt to increase blood circulation and smooth the skin’s appearance. Next, a stress-relieving back massage eases muscle tension, and a pampering facial does wonders to your skin. To finish up: You'll tuck into a two-course lunch served poolside so you can relax and make use of the spa's facilities. Make sure to indulge in the sauna and steam room, soak in the whirlpool, and go for a swim in the sunlit indoor pool. The "Ultimate Indian Summer" package is priced at 185 euros, available Monday to Friday until November 30, 2011.


The Merrion: The Obamas' Hotel Choice in Dublin

The Merrion, DublinWe get why the Obamas booked The Merrion on their recent trip to Ireland. The five-star hotel in Dublin is home to Ireland's only Michelin two-star restaurant and the country's largest collection of private art outside the National Gallery. Not only that- the hotel lets guests raid the pantry (so they can take home all the hand-crafted goodies they've tasted on the premises.) Housed in four restored Georgian townhouses, The Merrion also features the Tethra Spa and an in-house pool. A recent article in The Guardian UK posits that the "all-too-brief stay by Barack Obama could position the Merrion Hotel in Dublin at the heart of the map for American tourists." Why brief, you ask? Because after renting out the entire property, the Pres had to leave early-- after a light lunch-- to avoid getting stranded due to a "possible lock down of air space because of the Icelandic volcano."
